Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The time is probably not yet ripe for you to toss your chef's hat into Bravo's Top Chef competition, but you can enjoy many of its best Quickfire Challenge recipes. Top Chef: The Quickfire Cookbook collects 75 top-flight recipes from the five seasons of the show. With the help of this illustrated book, you will be able to reproduce your own versions of Spike's Pizza Alla Grecque and Stephanie's Chocolate Cake. The book also contains information on hosting your own Quickfire Cocktail Party and staging, if you dare, your own home Quickfire Challenge. An apt resource for any fantasy Top Chef.
Library Journal
Top Chef fans will demand this cookbook, which includes chef bios, plenty of pictures, and recipes (with cooking, time, show season, and episode) from the show's Quickfire Challenges: Jeff's Oat-Fried Chicken and Grits (Quickfire Challenge: create a unique dish that pairs with Quaker Oats in 45 minutes); Fabio's Brûléed Banana with Espresso Zabaione (Quickfire Challenge: create a breakfast amuse-bouche for guest Rocco DiSpirito); and Tre's Surf-and-Turf Burger (Quickfire Challenge: create an adventurous burger).

    tastefully fabulous

    This book is fabulous. I'm a huge fan of Top Chef, and this book definitely lived up to the hype. There is such an eclectic mix of recipes from the chefs throughout the seasons. I love the variety. Also, the character bios are great. Definitely a great gift!

    Nice book; haven't tried the recipes

    This is a great gift for any die-hard top chef fan! It has recipes for tons of quick-fire challenges across all seasons so far. GREAT pictures and visuals. The number of recipes is huge, but it also contains fun facts and little features of various cast members. It highlights the most innovative and successful dishes. I haven't cooked any of the recipes myself, so I don't know how they'll turn out, but the book is flashy and exciting and LOOKS delicious! A great gift for a foodie.

    Great book if you are trying to impress somebody

    We did not expect this book to be so nice, it has this fancy exterior and strong hardback. We love the illustrations and the explainations for this book. We have tried some of the recipes and the food is so good. When you cook for people they will think you are a fancy chef.

    If you're not already watching Bravo's TOP CHEF series...

    ...this book could make you an enthusiastic fan of the show. It's become my armchair guide to watching the reruns of seasons 1-5, because it's full of information about the show, the cast, and the contestants, AND, now that I have the recipes in front of me, I can try them in MY kitchen. Of course I can say that I'm getting more out of TOP CHEF by having this reference when I observe the creative processes of inspired, talented people who can dream up flavor experiences in small bites while under the enormous pressure of a televised competition, but the book also stands alone as a great inspiration for the home chef. I'm looking forward to a next volume!
